Attention fellow owners and enthusiasts, It has come to my attention that the California New Car Dealers Association has filed a "false advertising" complaint against Tesla with the California DMV on September 16, 2013. The 20 page complaint, which can be viewed in PDF form here, includes screen shots from Tesla's "true cost of ownership" page, its financing calculator, as well as various order and configuration screens. CNCDA claims that Tesla is "savings packing" in its representations, which CNCDA claims violates state and federal law. CNCDA is not asking for Tesla to change its advertising, instead it is asking the DMV to revoke Tesla's dealer and manufacturing license! I would encourage my fellow owners and prospective customers to write letters directly to the DMV and let them know about your positive experience with Tesla. CNCDA is doing everything it can to cause problems for Tesla in California - where it is legal for Tesla to sell directly to the consumer. Please send your letters directly to: Ms. Jean Shiomoto, Acting Director Department of Motor Vehicles 2415 First Ave. Sacramento, CA 95814 I am just fuming after reading the above complaint, and even more upset after reading this article which purports that Tesla is now in a "in a race" against GM - a company who made a vague announcement that it has the technology to compete with Tesla, but did not actually announce any product or time frame for a product. I've never read more drivel in my life. It appears that our media "friends" are no longer interested in bashing EVs, they are now just interested in bashing Tesla. Please, we have to do something!
